Evernote and Rock Guitar – Yep, that Works.

Evernote, Off Topic Friday

Even though it’s not Friday quite yet, and even though this thread isn’t entirely off-topic, I’ve decided to throw it into my “Off Topic Friday” section for all you Yanni lovers out there.

I’ve been playing guitar for a while now so I’m not going to tell you installing Evernote tonight will send you into the rock star stratosphere. The truth is, it takes practice, practice, practice to get pretty much anywhere.

What I can help you with is a way to keep track of all the things you’re learning or working on, and I can’t believe this is just coming to me now – the thought of mixing Evernote with music! Here’s the thing; every guitar player fights with a song at one point or another. Even the best guitar players on the planet are sometimes stymied by rather simple parts.

Over the course of the last week or so I’ve been sitting down at my computer  for a few minutes every night. With each session, I sit down and go to two places on the web:

a) A YouTube video where the guitar player (Mark Tremonti) from Alterbridge shows you how to play their song “Ghost of Days Gone By”.

b) A guitar tab website that has the sheet music (tab) for the song.

I finally clued in tonight though and thought to fire both of these into Evernote. Instead of hunting the web searching for these two snippets of information I can just go to my note and proceed to struggle with this song.

Evernote Tabs















It doesn’t matter what kind of music you like or what music you’re playing, you can build up a pretty solid base of material within Evernote in no time. Scales, chords, sheet music, practice notes. Heck, why not throw Skitch into the mix as well and really take it to the next level?
